Re: OXS function / performance

I use to run my '86 Coupe w/o it and it ran the great.  I think your car
will run good if you have the fuel mixture adjusted just right to most
conditions that exist except if your car needs work.  Even then it
sometimes helps to adjust it just so the car will run to allow you to get
a part or take it to your mechanic conditions.  If you adjust the fuel
mixture with the oxygen sensor hooked back up, it may run like it does now
with it off.  Maybe you car runs better due to the work you just had done.
Just a couple of things to consider.

See ya!
